    Clearly the most overrated attribute in an NFL player (according to GMs) is character.

    Tom Brady and Peyton Manning have good mobility, they just aren't great runners.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Re: The most overrated attribute in football

    Yeah I agree with Mardro and I also think QB mobility is important and a very good asset to have. If your Offensive Line can protect the QB at all times its not so important, Petyon and Tom don't have great mobility but they do have some, both move well within the pocket and have quick feet. These two also have very stellar Offensive Lines protecting.

    I think Booty has solid Mobility, he can role out and make the throw and he's also quick footed. Jackson has all the mobility in the world, he's also a very strong guy who can break the grasp from the big boys making it difficult to get sacks on him.

    I'm really exited and have acknowledged that the sky is the limit with Tarvaris, he has all the physical tools you could ask for but he needs to get his time in. I also think that its important that Tarvaris knows that he will have to evolve as a QB if he has a long carear, the strong legs and speed will disappear and he will have to become a pocket passer with good mobility. I think he has already shown the willingness to hang in the pocket and deliver the ball and would rather pass then run, but on the other hand it will be very difficult to defend Tarvaris if he can become a true West Coast QB unlike Michael Vick while having great talent to make plays with his legs. Combine his talents with AP, our Oline and our WR's and we could be very explosive.

    Steve Young was a great player who had awesome mobility outside of the pocket as well as in.

But the reality is that modern defenses (Tampa 2, etc.) are set up to minimize the ability of the QB to run downfield. REAL QB mobility is the small steps inside the pocket that a QB takes, not runs downfield. Watch Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. Every step Brady takes is deliberate and has a purpose, and he has awesome "mobility", while running downfield very, very rarely. Real mobility is inside the pocket mobility.
    you are mixing up Running QB(vick), and mobile QB(garcia,mcnabb,romo)

    I dont think being mobile, moving in the pocket, is overrated what so ever. U cannot be a statue in the backfield(bledsoe,testeverde) in this day an age, u have to be able to move in the pocket.

    Wow I'm not a GM but I certainly don't agree with that. IMO Character is very important for the locker room and the team in general. Its best to build a team with great talent and character. I think that Ardius Bowman was a perfect example of a character issue who did not get drafted or signed and is now playing in a lower league. Character is huge and if they pay no attention to it they could find there players names constently in the news paper. It would surprise me to find out that the Bengals GM said this, certainly not ours...

    I definitly agree on this, good mobility but they are not great runners.

    Yup yup Toney Romo has some the best pocket mobility I've ever seen, love watching him play.

    Re: The most overrated attribute in football

    When I first read the tittle I was thinking "speed" right away.
    I also think "size" is overrated.

    People get judged to fast because of this. If a 17 year old kid is under 5-9, some coaches will already say he'll never become a QB just because of his height. STUPID!!!
